Holkham Hall, Norfolk
A magnificent Palladian house at the centre of a 25,000 acre privately owned estate on the north Norfolk coast, Holkham is the ancestral seat of the Earls of Leicester and the Coke family who have lived here since the 1750s. Holkham is a unique and prestigious venue for corporate events, including directors’ meetings, conferences, presentations, product launches, ceremonies, dinners, company parties and team building days.
In summer 2016 the venue opened its new, dedicated events venue in the old pottery building near the hall, The Lady Elizabeth Wing. It offers state-of-the-art facilities for over 250 dinner guests, 320 conference guests and 400 guests for a drinks party.
Castle Ashby, Northamptonshire
Built in 1574, Castle Ashby is the magnificent ancestral home of the Compton family. Located in the heart of a 10,000-acre working estate, the house and gardens can be found nestled amidst two hundred acres of beautiful parkland designed by Capability Brown.
There are 35 acres of gardens at Castle Ashby, including the romantic Italian Gardens, the impressive Orangery and stunning Arboretum planted with seeds collected from around the world. Adjacent to the gardens is the extensive 4-acre walled garden with its stone walls and adorned gates.
Ragley Hall, Alcester, Warwickshire
Ragley Hall and Estate, a beautiful stately home and park dating from 1680 and the home of the 9th Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford, and their family for 9 generations, is set to host a new range of events as it becomes a specialist events business.
The Hall already hosts local, regional and national events, but, under the new plans, aims to increase the number of events it hosts in the House and on the 6500 acres estate as the business switches its focus from tourism to events. The changes offer event organisers greater access to the House, greater flexibility and more availability. Close to central Birmingham and the NEC, Ragley is perfect for roadshows, exhibition dinners and ride & drives.
